A more apt comparison might be to say that there are four kinds of people who like macaroni and cheese: Those who eat it frequently and want the recipe to stay the same, those who eat it frequently and want the recipe to vary, those who eat it infrequently and want the recipe to be stable, and those who eat it infrequently and want the recipe to change.
Way to stretch a metaphor way past the snapping point.

Look, most people who go to a Superman movie, or a Batman movie, or a Spider-Man movie or whatever are infrequent or non-readers of comics.

This is easily determined by the fact that so few people read superhero comics, period.

No one who's not deeply invested in the comics cares for an instant whether the characters in the movies look exactly like the licensed drawings that they see occasionally on TV shirts and children's underwear. Superman's got a big red cape, an "S" on his chest and he flies.

The differences between Supes' costume or Lois's look in this movie and the comic drawings is not a risk of any kind. They will have exactly zero effect on the film's box office. People will either find the story, action and effects exciting and satisfying or they won't.
